King will protect us, King will be happy with us...


King is a unique Crimper and a leader of the Southern Hive. He can be found wandering the Royal Valley alongside his Droneguards. If imprisoned by the Southern Hive, King will appear and begin to eat the character.

If the player has kidnapped the Queen, King will join a Base Assault against the player. This base assault squad also contains a Prince, a War Gorillo, and 8 Droneguards.


When spawned at the Southern Hive, King will spawn with an age multiplier of 2.30x to 2.50x, bringing his skills well over 100. He is very powerful, and one of the strongest melee combatants in the game. However, when spawned as part of the raid that attempts to rescue the Queen of the South, he will only spawn with a multiplier of 0.80x to 1.00x, making him much weaker in that scenario.

The Statistics here are taken from FCS. Players should be aware that animal characters level up as they grow, and may be stronger or weaker depending on their current age.

Although he is supposed to have an AI Core, it may not spawn due to his small inventory.
